The primary goal of this initiative is to reach and train hunters with three phases of instruction: basic, instructor, and advanced. This allows trained instructors to: observe positive changes in knowledges, skills, and attitudes (learning); reinforce previously learned principles; and build a network that promotes a positive, lifetime learning process. The program strives to deliver high quality education and outreach through its volunteers to the over 1 million new and seasoned hunters in Texas.
